Love Lingers in the Deep

I wish I could keep my heart soft the way it used to be.
When I would respond first with hurt and tears instead of anger and indignation.
That soft tenderness that allows us to let go and trust with no reservation.
The hurt that wants to know why and remedy all of the reasons why it hurts.
Not just for self, but for all who hurt.
To have someone that responds in kind.
Who recognizes the pain you have in themselves and can respond with gentleness and tenderness to that deep ache in you so that you may heal each other and revel in the love it brings
